Solution

When 5% alkaline potassium permanganate solution is added drop by drop to warm ethanol in a test tube, an oxidation reaction would be observed by us. Ethanol is oxidised to ethanoic acid in the presence of the strong oxidising agent alkaline potassium permanganate.
The chemical equation for the above reaction is as follows:
CH3CH2OH + 2[O] → CH3COOH + H2O

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
